Immaculate

Famous quotes containing the word immaculate:

    The poem refreshes life so that we share,
    For a moment, the first idea . . . It satisfies

    And sends us, winged by an unconscious will,
    To an immaculate end. We move between these points:
    From that ever-early candor to its late plural....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    I know that there are many persons to whom it seems derogatory to link a body of philosophic ideas to the social life and culture of their epoch. They seem to accept a dogma of immaculate conception of philosophical systems.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)

    A virgin from her tender infancy,
    Chaste and immaculate in very thought.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
